Celebrate Día de los Muertos with These Delicious Recipes
Pork Tinga with Squash
A pork tinga made with beer and three kinds of squash is comfort food at its best. Served with a dollop of spicy guacamole and topped with a crispy tostada, this recipe is a wonderful dish for fall. Even better, it can be made in a slow cooker!
Fried Drum with Marigold Crema
This Day of the Dead recipe is a nod to our South Texas coastal town. This drum is lightly dusted with seasoned cornstarch, fried until golden brown, and served with a creamy marigold crema. The delicious crema is made with caramelized onions, garlic, and dried marigold flowers and it perfectly complements the fried fish.
Mango Marigold Margarita
Marigolds are considered the flower of the dead. This vibrant Day of the Dead margarita made with marigold-infused tequila, fresh mango juice, and plenty of lime juice, is a great way to try the flowers for the first time.
